I just wanted to know if the University of Michigan has a hall of fame restaurant or cafe? I hate to use OSU is an example but they use to have Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe here in Columbus but now it's gone and demolished, but I was just wondering if Michigan has any of those places down on campus?
Does Michigan Have a Hall of Fame restaurant?
What kind of idiot would suggest name tags??
I agree. If done right, a place like this could really be a hit. If it was founded by a former star player, that would give it a better chance of success. Who doesn't want to go to Woodson's after a game?
Maize and Blue Deli makes several HOF worthy sandwiches
Their autograph wall is pretty much a Hall of Fame anyway.
For many years Ann Arbor had a restaurant named the Pretzel Bell located on the site of what is now the Champion House. It had loads of great sports memorabilia covering the walls. It was a true tribute to Wolverine sports history. No professional sports or celebrity bullshit. Good food and drink. Can't believe it's gone.
Regular restaurant, but the best submarine sandwiches I've ever had !
I don't see the need. Columbus is a different place... it's a big city where the Buckeyes are treated like an NFL team. Ann Arbor is a college town... virtually everything in the city is a shrine to the university.
If a former player or coach opened such a place, it might be cool. I wonder if it wouldn't work better in suburban Detroit than downtown AA, though. If I recall, the Buckeye Cafe was in the burbs.
The walls are filled with team memorabelia and photos. And the sandwiches are all M sports based:
